Snowdysseus – Playing during the North Country Shorts

Once in a great while a film comes along that surprises you, entertains you, impresses you, and moves you.  They are rare, but they do exist.

And sometimes they come in smaller packages.

Snowdysseus is a true film.  While some animated films may pride themselves on the cleverness of their medium, this little movie does not.

This movie transcends.  And you can watch it at the North Country Shorts on Saturday June 15th, 3 PM at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.


Filmmaker Evan Curtis submitted this film just in the nick of time.  It came in when everyone wants things to remain status quo in the program, and no one wants to change anything.  Yet we said, “we must have it.”

Alas, the printed materials for the Forum were already made, so here is the humble and simple bio from the director and description of the film.



Evan Curtis speaks in the tongue of animation. He draws inspiration from his environment, creating miniature worlds reflective of his life experiences growing up in the Adirondacks.



Snowdysseus is a stop motion animation that explores the vulnerability in Nostalgia for One’s Home. It is shot on location in the miniature snow-mountains of the Adirondacks.
